Suddenly my internet speed dropped about 5x.

2 days ago I turned on my pc, went off to the internet and boom. It's slow. I thought that maybe its about my provider. No it's still slow. Weirdest thing is that my torrent dl speed is still about 100kbps. But when i want to download something with my browser(s), speed is just about 20kbps. And surfing on the internet is slow too. I'm using windows 7 32-bit. And i use wired connection. And since I have XP installed aswell, I tried the internet there. I was having no problems with it there. But I use win 7 and I need this problem fixed. I have even scanned my pc for viruses. Nothing. Please help Me ! :).

    Hi,
    You can gain back the speed by clearing the unwanted files and history's of your browser.Using browsers like Firefox and Google chrome may help you to over come the slow internet speed problem because this browser dose not have flash or java script enabled on it .After doing this you can check your internet speed at ScanmySpeed.com .The site runs without any java or Flash code.
